"Some 10-15% of the population is gay or hs some tendencies towards it."

Of course the UKIP guy is a disgrace but I was just wondering where this 15% figure comes from. For instance the household survey from several years ago came up with only about 1.5% the population who classed themselves as being either homosexual or bisexual. 95% of people described themselves as heterosexuals. 3% either said 'don't know' or refused to answer and 0.5% chose other.

How many of the population are gay of course is neither here nor there the important thing is that they treated the same as everyone else. It is just that you see stats banded about!
